Golf Meet

7 posts in this topic

Had an all day golf meet today, and rather than take the usual photos of golfers, decided I'd shoot some birds today. I've had a Better Beamer for a long time, but never used it, so figured today was a day to learn a little about it. I have a tendency to overdo just a bit (these are anywhere from -2/3 to +1 on Speedlite ETTL. C&C very welcome!

A lot of excellent comps there, Ken.

I'd bet $100 you didn't need the BB at all given the likely distances these were shot, and Nos. 1, 2, 5 and 7 show the telltale strong flash.

Both the Cape May warbler shots are excellent!

I think these subjects are much more interesting then golfers. I had no idea how many warblers we had up here. Great pictures.

Thanks, all. Gotta have time to play sometimes! I can tell a couple of those shots are still kinda "hot". Work to do yet.

Just back from my last graduation a few minutes ago. One more long day of golf and I should be able to get back to being active again. Again, lots of great stuff on the board!

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
